Description: The MBA-P Capstone course gives students the opportunity to apply the multi-functional (strategy, finance, marketing, organizational behavior, etc.) knowledge that they have gained in the program and their own professional experience to solve a complex, real-world managerial problem. However, this course provides a unique twist to further challenge the students – the real-world problem is based on a Houston-based, socialoriented community organization. Students will work with senior executives at these organizations and the course instructors through the semester to develop thorough and actionable solutions to the strategic challenges facing these organizations. For instance, cases include growth strategies, turnaround strategies, business plans for major programs, alliance/partnership strategies, and entrepreneurial start-ups. Capstone organizations come from many different parts of the community, including education/childhood development, healthcare, social services, and environment/conservation, as well as come in many different sizes.
